I get really freaked out when I have to go out into the real world as it were. Get out there with people that we call mundanes, people who have everyday jobs and everyday lives, and the most exciting thing they do that week is decide what nightclub they’re going to.

I can’t deal with it. It’s just too narrow. And I find in places like the SCA, people are much more accepting of differences. You can do this, you can do that, you can be this way, you can be that way, and people go oh, yeah, that’s okay. I find the real world is very you must do things this way or else you’re a freak. So, I’m a freak; I’ll go hang out with the other freaks, and that’ll be just fine!
